Connecting old keyboards to Ableton - Casio VZ-1

Hey guys,

 

I have an ancient Casio VZ-1 that I'd like to use as a controller for my synths during sessions.  Casio doesn't show up in my audio tab drop-down menus, so I'm wondering if there's some software out there floating around that I need to download before Ableton will detect incoming midi messages?  So far there is no detection.

 

Thanks!

    Hi, 

    Your MIDI interface should be showing up in the MIDI/Sync tab - you need to configure the interface, not the Casio VZ-1 directly, to receive incoming MIDI messages.
